It's a throwback love story for the young at heart. With talk of curfews and driving to nowhere, 1922 puts you in a college mind-set, where the hours between Friday night and Monday all belong to the madness. It's all poise and posture and expectation, the assembly of a perfect weekend with the building blocks of friendship, mystery, and attraction.
A hi-hat shuffle keeps the backbeat alive and the melody walks us right down main street during happy hour. With the waves, half-drunk beers, and cigarette smoke of a restless generation, Box the Oxford puts a soundtrack to the restless need for excitement with a page from the Vampire Weekend songbook.
Box the Oxford is an Indie Rock band from San Luis Obispo.
